Copyright/published Year: 2001 by Houghton-Mifflin
Virginia Price, a privileged New York debutante, pregnant from ì a rape, travels west to bear her child away from New York ì society. Henry Mohr, exhausted from combat in the trenches of ì World War I and haunted by his abusive father, returns home to ì his family's Wyoming ranch. They are the most unlikely of lovers. ì Virginia, at seventeen, is at home in New York's after-hours ì speakeasies; Henry, only with a concrete task before him: ì breaking a horse to saddle, sinking a fence post. Sharing nothing ì but loneliness and a certain watchfulness of soul, they begin an ì affair that soon grows into something beyond their control.
At first it seems purely physical, or as if their bodies were ì instinctively being drawn together to fill in each other's ì absences. But when a man from New York arrives to claim ì Virginia's hand in marriage and Henry's father threatens to ì repeat his past abuses, they must confront their love for each ì other. With a suspenseful, page-turning plot and set amid the ì exquisitely rendered landscape of the Rocky Mountain West.
